Ultimately, an education is key to improving the quality of human life. It’s the core where the combined knowledge, skills, customs and values are passed on to the new generation, and are essential in the development of an individual. In addition, the positive influence that these individuals can have on society once they are armed with the knowledge and experience to make a difference is immense, and there is no doubt that education is key to a world that is also a great place in which to live. Education is important for anyone who really wants to have a good life. ;) :P
Early childhood education can bring more and better jobs to a state and can thereby promote higher per-capita earnings for the state’s residents,” says Bartik in this talk, given ay TEDxMiamiUniversity in Ohio. “When legislatures and others think about economic development, what they first of all think about are business tax incentives. Early childhood programs can do the exact same thing.” All too often, school lessons set concrete problems with clean answers. Which, suggests Adrián Paenza, can limit students’ creative problem-solving abilities. But perhaps more importantly, it can engender arrogance — setting classist expectations for the answers everyone ought to know. :cheer:
If you look back to the 70s and 80s, many people were able to get by without even having a high school diploma. You could get a labor job and make $20 an hour without much effort. These days, these jobs are much harder to acquire. Not getting some sort of post high school education these days is the equivalent of dropping out of high school 20 years ago. If you do not have some sort of education these days, most companies will throw your resume away before ever talking to you. It is very imperative you have an advanced education if you want to be successful. So, you've been out of high school for a while now and you have responsibilities and don't have time to go to school. ;) :cheer:
The dawn of the information super highway, aka the internet, has given people many options that were never available even five years ago. You can get just about any type of education online and the best part is that it is significantly cheaper! You can work on obtaining your diploma or degree from home, whenever you have time, at your own pace. There are so many benefits to having an education that it would take me hours to sit here and type them all out, but here are some of the major benefits which include the following: Educated people make more money. People respect people with educations more than those who don't. Having an education allows you to work in a field that you enjoy. ;) :cheer:
A good education not only teaches one the essential skills of the working world; it also prepares the mind to make sane, healthy, and intelligent decisions about any situation that one may encounter in life's journey. A good education helps one to determine between what is right and what is wrong. Although there are several benefits to a good education, the main benefit is that it makes one a better person in all aspects of life. Education is a basic human right, and has been recognised as such since the 1948 adoption of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights. :woohoo: :side:
In 1990, the Education for All (EFA) commitment was launched to ensure that by 2015 all children, particularly girls, those in difficult circumstances and those belonging to ethnic minorities, have access to and complete, free and compulsory primary education of good quality. It is a key to attaining the Millennium Development Goals. It is universally recognised as one of the most fundamental building blocks for human development and poverty reduction. Without education, you are nowhere in this time and age. We can say that education is simply the soul of a society, as it passes from generation to another. It is also is universally recognised as one of the most fundamental building blocks for human development and poverty reduction. :huh:
When given the opportunity to learn, people are empowered to contribute fully to the development of their lives, their communities, and their countries. Education remains one of the most powerful instruments for reducing poverty and inequality, and helps lay the foundation for sustained economic growth. Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation. Both individuals and countries benefit from education. For individuals, the potential benefits lie in general quality of life and in the economic returns of sustained, satisfying employment. :woohoo: :whistle:
A new report from the College Board, ‘Education Pays 2013: The Benefits of Higher Education for Individuals and Society’, highlights both the monetary benefits of higher education, and also lesser known benefits – including a healthier lifestyle and reduced risk of obesity. As a rejoinder to the ongoing debate about whether higher education is suitable for everybody, the report includes substantial evidence of the benefits, plus a supplement called ‘How College Shapes Lives: Understanding the Issues’. The latter explains the analysis and aims to show that “disappointing outcomes for some [students]” are not inconsistent with “the reality of significant benefits for most students”. Overall, the report argues that “on average and for most people postsecondary education has a high payoff”. :P
The most-measured benefit of higher education is of course graduate salaries, and the report confirms that higher levels of education do result in higher earning power. It cites research by Greenstone and Looney (2011) of the Brookings Institution’s Hamilton Project, which says: “On average, the benefits of a four-year college degree are equivalent to an investment that returns 15.2% per year.” The monetary benefits of higher education can be seen in the lifetime difference of 65% earning power when comparing graduate salaries and the earnings of those with just high school education. \:P ;) :cheer:
Education is very important only for people who understand what and why they do, for people who have the exact goals and who are ready to work hard for reaching them. Even if you have the diplomas of Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge and Sorbonne at once but you bought them all, they are worthless, because people pay you not for the number and colors of your diplomas, they pay you for your real knowledge and professional skills. So it is important to study to confirm the level of Bachelor or Master written in your diploma by real knowledge.
